Zero Motorcycles Launches 2018 Lineup — Quicker, Longer, Harder!

Zero Motorcycles Press Intro | International Motorcycle Show

Zero had a massive showing again this year, with a central spot on the show floor at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA.

eRoadRacing Indianapolis Race | A Field of Winners

Unlike the Laguna Seca round, all bikes that started were able to complete this race. Shane Turpin was fastest from start to finish, leading on every lap. No matter how he hard he tried, Bostrom could not get much closer than a few seconds behind Turpin. They’re on equal machines, ~$200,000 Brammo RR factory prototypes, simply the fastest, most powerful machines out there this weekend. Coming up in third place was Kenyon Kluge, with a gap that started at about 45 seconds after the first lap and grew with each lap until he finished 2 minutes 11 seconds behind leader Shane Turpin.
